248 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

I've been listening to just about every kind of music, and Oasis is the only band that never dissapoints me! Noel Gallagher is the best songwriter of the last 20 years. Thank you for the good times Oasis!

How are Oasis #54? The Best Band to come out of Britain along with The Stones and The Beatles, But Oasis took inspiration and raised the bar to where it's never been, Noel writing songs wit unbelievable meaning and thousands of people relate to his lyrics, mix that with the attitude and arrogance of the best frontman there's ever been, You can't get any better? Manchester was the place to be back then!

How is Oasis at 53? They were the inspiration for all us growing up in the 80/90's. Some say they are not the best because they did not complete a world tour but does this really matter? They remind me of a time a long time ago when the world was easy to understand

Best band to come out of the uk since the Beatles. Period.

The band originally consisted of Brad Arnold (vocals/drums), Todd Harrell (bass guitar) and Matt Roberts (guitar). They were soon joined by guitarist Chris Henderson, and later by drummer Richard Liles.

Wow this list is horrible 3 doors down has so many great songs Gah can't believe this

No no, at least in top 10, well it doesn't matter because this list is voted by the public and the stupid public obviously has no taste in rock music.

WHAT?!?! How the hell this band so low?! They are the real rock of 21th century. This list so screwed. Disgusting. - Nickss

I agree these guys are so good

253 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

Love songs like "There and Back Again" and "What I want". Chris Daughtry has an amazing voice and inspiring lyrics. Definitely an awesome band!

I love Daughtry! One of my favourite bands ever. I love most of their songs especially Open Your Eyes. They deserve to be higher than 184.

255 Opeth Opeth Opeth is a Swedish progressive death metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990 by David Isberg, who invited Mikael Akerfeldt into the band as a bassist. Isberg ended up leaving the band, which lead to Mikael becoming the band's vocalist, guitarist, principal songwriter, and driving force. Along with ...read more.

Why is Opeth not on this list? Mikael Akerfeldt is the most talented musician I've ever heard (followed closely by John Petrucci). If you have never heard an Opeth song, you are doing yourself an injustice. Their music spans so many genres they have something for almost anybody. Definitely the most underrated band of all time.

Their constant switch to melodic and heavier styles of metal sound amazing, and they are definitely one of the best metal bands from the past few decades.

Ok... So I had to actually put them on here? Listen to Blackwater Park, so dark and atmospheric, so heavy and mellow. Just a perfect blend of soul and brutality

Opeth being this low on this list makes me so sad.

256 Michael Learns to Rock

You gotta be deaf not to enjoy their songs. They put a new meaning to the genre of rock music. Sentimental music that warm one's heart and brings back much childhood memories.

Most underrated band ever. Shame before they can release The Actor in the US their label got broke, but now they have a huge Asian fanbase, so why don't the US go and have a try? - justinduongpiano

The melody and the lyrics of their songs are great! They should be on top 50 at least. What a discrimination in music industry we have. Gosh!

Mltr blue night, sleeping child, complicated heart are so good to listen to

257 Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane Jefferson Airplane was a San Francisco, California-based band who pioneered the American counterculture movement as well as psychedelic rock. ...read more.

With "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love" and "Volunteers" and "Martha" and "Young Girl Sunday Blues" and "Embryonic Journey" and "Crown of Creation" etc, this band is more than qualified as the most underrated on this list. - IgnoreThis

They are perfect, their music is just genius! And "Surrealistic Pillow" is surely a masterpiece... - apouroiselle

Pretty influential psychedelic band, arguably the innovators. Deserve to be in the top 59

You'll are wrong again! Another Great Band that's been thrown under the bus!

Because they can make music nobody else can create. That's why I think they should be on top 5. Manowar is awesome! Manowar is one of the best rock bands in the world.

260 Dead by April

Dead by April truly rocks! They are the best. Their songs are so great because they make awesome lyrics, they play great guitar, the drumming is great, melodic vocals, best growling, and the synths also rock. Just listen to the songs Losing you and Stronger, I'm sure you'll get addicted to it. Dead by April probably the best band there is.

Just hear song Dead by April make life to the fullest, lyric full of deep meaning and music is really awesome and rocks.
